on November 26, 2020

After having a newborn baby, you must know by now that doing laundry is a constant struggle. There are always going to be dirty clothes to be washed. The real question is how to get those clothes clean in a safe and organic way. There are many different options to choose from in the world of organic laundry products.

Wool dryer balls are a great option to use instead of fabric softener. They have no toxic chemicals, they last hundreds of loads, reduce static, make your clothes dry faster, and they can be scented with a couple drops of essential oils. 

ULAT Dryer Balls are a natural and non-fragrant alternative to using chemically-laden commercial dryer sheets. The unique design also maximizes efficiency so you can dry your clothes better. They come in a set of 3 Large Premium Wool Dryer Balls—in Natural Grey or a surprise mix of subtle colours.

The biggest benefit to using wool dryer balls is the energy savings by drying your laundry up to 50% faster. In addition, colours will not bleed or fade.

ULAT Dryer balls are made with 100% Canadian premium wool is completely handmade. Canadian sheep deal with extreme temperatures and produce an abundance of buoyant soft wool, which is ideal to make our unique method of wool dryer balls.  They are very simple to use. Simply put all three balls in your dryer along with your washed clothes and turn on the machine. To naturally scent your clothes, simply add your choice of pure essential oils to each dryer ball.

Dryer balls will last a minimum of 100 loads; for most this allows for years of use. Once the balls become dense or firm, it’s time for a new set. Don’t dispose, reincarnate. These make great dog toys, make a craft from them or cut them up for birds to use the inners to make nests. When your balls are not in use, keep them in a well-ventilated dry location and avoid storing them in plastic.

Do Dryer Balls Work with synthetic or Non-Natural Fibers?

Wool dryer balls work best on natural fibres, such as linen, cotton, hemp and bamboo. This is because synthetics cling and pull the wool fibres from the dryer balls, causing lint and in some cases static. This isn’t harmful but can reduce the lifespan of your ULAT Dryer Balls.

In general, manufacturers recommend that synthetic products be hung to dry, as the heat from the dryer can break down the elasticity of non-natural fibres, decreasing their longevity. They also suggest this to eliminate pilling which can be caused during the drying cycle when tumbling with natural fibres.

We recommend you read each label as a surprising number of clothes contain non-natural or synthetic materials.

If you have blended fibre fabrics that are more of a natural fibre than not, you should not have a lint issue. But, if the fibre content is close to a 50/50 ratio, we recommend you hang dry your synthetics.

We recommend using ULAT dryer balls. They are a great Canadian company and we love supporting our local Canadian economy. Learn more here
